Sega to publish Aliens Infestation

A new game based on the Aliens franchise is on the way, according to an Australian Classification Board listing.

A NeoGAF user spotted the listing, which gives the titles as Aliens Infestation.

It’s a cross-platform game with “science fiction violence”, apparently.

Published by Sega, which holds the license, the game is in development at Way Forward Technologies, the team which made Contra 4 and A Boy & His Blob.

No word from either party as yet, but we’re betting on a side-scrolling downloadable title.

As Eurogamer points out, there are at least two other Aliens games in the works – Gearbox’s long-dormant Aliens: Colonial Marines and a new title from The Creative Assembly.
